When My wife and I decided to search for a new condo, the question wasn't who was going to help us find one, but the way we were going to be treated, and we found in George a kind of warm feeling that we didn't feel with any other agent. He was always there for us, always sharing his honest opinion and always very patient with us, I even remember one time I was very late in one of our appointments (about 1 hr or so) and when I arrived to the place to my surprise he was still there waiting for me, very optimistic and excited to do his work, that's when I thought that George had a lot of dedication to his clients and he really made us feel like we were the only clients he had, he even offered to help us to move into the new place. We appreciate the help and attention that George provided to us and 3 months after we bought our condo, George has called us from time to time just to see how we are doing and has offered his help on anything we need. I would recommend his services to anyone especially my friends and family because I know that they are going to get treated with the same treatment that my wife and I got. Thanks for your help and Keep up the good work.

Marcia is a great real estate agent! She was very helpful and patient with us. My husband and I enjoyed working with her and appreciate all her hard work. She did a great job finding houses she thought were worth looking at. Thanks Marcia for all your help. We had a great experience choosing you and Dream Town.

DreamTown was a great website. My agent was Chad Vanags, and he couldn't have been more helpful. I was a first time homebuyer with many questions. Chad took the time to answer all of them and ensure I was comfortable with every step of the home buying process before moving onto the next one. It was great that he was also an Ohio native, which made me feel even more comfortable! Chad was great and I would highly recommend him to any of my friends looking for an agent. Thank you!!
Carolyn Mandley, Uptown
George and Dream town were very helpful as I gave them little time to get me into a new place. Between the places that I could narrow down online and those that George suggested and made appointments for, I was into a place in just over a month! He'll probably kill me for saying this but he was a great help in getting my new hardwood floors installed prior to all of my furniture arriving.
Thanks again George.

Marcia was a great help and resource through our property buying process, sticking with us through almost purchasing a two-flat and then through buying our first house (yay!). Marcia always has a lot of information, whether it's about neighborhoods, contractors, or schools.
Early on, we sat down with Marcia and had a long talk about what we were looking for, so she knew what we would or would not be interested in - because of this, it didn't take long for her to find us what we were looking for (unlike the last agent we worked with, who seemed to want to show us EVERYTHING - Marcia helped us clarify our search).
Marcia was always helpful, flexible and easy to get along with, and (this one is important) we never got the feeling that she was pushing us to buy something, even though it took a while for us to find what we wanted. I would recommend Marcia to anyone (and have!) who's looking for an agent that they can trust!

Amy stuck with me to the very end. She is very down to earth and honest person which made the process enjoyable. She understood what I was looking for in a condo and never tried to rush the process until I found it.
I truly appreciate all the hard work Amy put in to helping me locate, research and purchase my property. The exceptional personal service provided by her certainly should be commended. Amy, you can definitely count on my recommendation for your services to my friends. . . and I will decidedly use you for my next purchase. Thanks again!

Our buying experience with Megan Stewart of Dream Town was outstanding, from start to finish. It started with the Dream Town website. The site was very easy to navigate around and contained great information. We spent lots of time reviewing properties on the site to help us narrow our selection. The website was where we connected up with Megan. We can't say enough about Megan. She was extremely knowledgeable, professional, helpful, honest and just fun to be with as we progressed through our purchase experience. We have bought many homes over the years, in different states, and I can honestly say Megan was the most thorough and responsive agent we have ever had. The condo-world was a new experience for us (with assessments, co-ops, parking purchases, etc. !). Through it, Megan was there to explain and ask all the right questions, both of us and the property owners and their agents. I would recommend Dream Town over and over again. Thank you, Megan!

Thank you so much Beverly for making the extra effort to make my first home purchase successful. Your patience and help through all the crucial steps made this possible.
Rick Lin, Wrigleyville
Mitch has patience and that's exactly what I needed in a realtor. I never felt rushed or pressured. We just sat for a half hour in one property so I could get a feel for the space . . . before I decided on something else!
He's a joy to work with and always available to answer questions, no matter how many you throw at him! I also appreciate his recommendation on where to go for all of my mortgage questions. I had a great team and now I'm in the most awesome home on the north shore.

Rebekah and David Levine
Working with Beverly Bahm at Dream Town has been a pleasure. Knowing the Beverly actually listened to our needs was a relief while we were in the long process of purchasing our first property. We have no complaints, only praise. I received Dream Town property listings through email that allowed me to search and calculate when I had free time, which helped narrow down our search.
Rebekah and David Levine, Garfield Park
We want to thank Yogi for the personal treatment and for helping us find the house of our dreams. With his patience and knowledge, we are sure that we found the best investment for us.
Idan Levi, Lakeview
Mark was a tremendous help in my first home buying experience. Everything went smoothly from start to finish, he negotiated a great deal that truly was in my best interest, and didn't push me into buying something that might not be the best fit. He was patient and even talked me "off the ledge" a few times when I got anxious. I will definitely work with Mark and Dream Town again on the resale. I will be recommending him to all my friends. Thanks Mark!
Kortni Lee, Lakeview
Amy was truly a pleasure to work with. She was patient with me as a first-time buyer and never made me feel rushed or pressured in any way. She was flexible throughout the entire process and offered me as much or as little advice and assistance as I requested. She allowed me to structure my home search at my pace and on my terms. She was always on top of things and returned calls and e-mails within minutes. I have already recommended Amy to friends and would do so again in the future.

Chris Lane and Melanie Donnelly
We had a great experience with Dream Town. We walked into the office one day without any expectations, and we were lucky enough to meet an agent who we knew always had our best interests in mind. Kora spent a lot of weekends taking us to viewings, and she defended our interests all the way up to closing. The website was easy to use, and was helpful in finding a condo specific to what we wanted. Thank you for your help, and we hope to work together in the future.
Abe and Steffi
My wife and I were extremely pleased with the service and commitment of Dream Town Realty and especially our agent, Beverly Bahm. Beverly was incredibly efficient and met our every need in looking for our new condominium in Chicago. Showing a deep concern for what we truly wanted, she scheduled us to see a wide variety of places. We soon found "The One" and she helped us all the way until closing with any and all of our questions. My wife and I being first time buyers were astounded to find that Beverly was able to assist us with all of our concerns. She even contacted many people on our behalf, including our lawyer, mortgage broker and the seller's realtor. We would highly recommend Beverly Bahm and Dream Town Realty to assist in buying or selling your home.
Abe and Steffi, Rogers Park
Kora was wonderful to work with! Her sincerity and dedication made the buying process for me quite simple. She was so knowledgeable about the real estate market and different areas of Chicago, not to mention very personable. She was always available to take me out and show me places as well as answer any questions I had. I would definitely recommend Kora to others. Many thanks to Kora for helping me find the home of my dreams!!!
Teresa Kowal, West Loop
Although I was only looking for a rental, Kora was amazing to work with! She was always available by phone and email. I'm very picky and had a lot of specific wants and needs. She offered many possibilities even though I had narrowed the field a great deal with my requests. My puppy and I have been happily living in our new place for a month! I would highly recommend Kora to prospective buyers and renters!

Greg Alley went so far above and beyond our expectations, we just can't say enough to capture it. He combined a perfect mix of knowledge, dedication, patience, fun, and respect as our realtor. Our circumstances had us wavering about buying real estate for two years, and Greg continued to be there for us anytime we wanted to explore what's out there. He made us feel like his only clients, never too busy or distracted to help at any time. We have ended up with a condo that is even better than we hoped for and we are more than thrilled to call home. We have and will continue to recommend him to everyone we know. Thanks, Greg!

Wayne & Gayle Kerslake
We found Tammi Vetter on-line and worked with her from 600 miles away in purchasing our property near downtown Chicago. As we did not know the city well, we relied on her expertise to guide us to the best location for our needs. The information she provided was thorough and accurate and any questions we had were answered within 24 hours by e-mail or phone. Because of her professionalism and integrity, we would definitely work with Tammi again.

Vikram and Shivani
We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge of the whole home buying process when we first came to dreamtown and found our agent, Beverly Bahm. We were so lucky to have someone who was so helpful and patient and still so knowledgeable and able to answer all of our questions. We were a little overwhelmed by the whole process and it was reassuring to know that we had someone on our side through the whole thing. The whole process was actually fun and all of the people that Beverly recommended to us (lenders, inspectors, attorneys, etc. ) made the process relatively easy. In addition to our great agent, the dreamtown. com website was full of great info and very easy to use. Now, we have the place that we dreamed about, and we will definitely keep in touch with Beverly in the future. We have nothing but positive things to say about the whole experience.

Katz and Schoper
Our agent helped us -- two very nervous first-time home buyers -- find the perfect condo as well as find a great deal. We called and e-mailed her constantly and she always responded right away. She was very reassuring - answering all the questions we had, and there were a million of them. Her real estate knowledge made our lives much easier as she guided us through the entire process. She helped us find a new home we love and helped negotiate down the price to an amount we could afford. Since this was our first time we had to rely on her a lot and we could not be happier with the end result.
As an international Ph. D. student in the US, I was largely unfamiliar with the laws and regulations that apply to real estate transactions. Thanks to Erika, the whole process of finding and acquiring my dream condo was a breeze. Erika offered dedicated guidance and advice on a variety of issues, and was instrumental in negotiating the purchase price. She always clearly explained my options and offered her valuable opinion. Equally important is that she could always be reached on the phone or email, and was very flexible with her schedule. It's been a pleasure to work with Erika, and I really enjoyed our numerous meetings.

Chris Kang and Dr. Sewon Kang
Our realtor James was all we could ever ask for in our search for the perfect condo. He was such a genuine, kind guy who not once made us feel pressured or uncomfortable while looking at each unit. We were on a time crunch and James took us to upwards of 15 showings each day! We really felt like James would bend over backwards to make sure that we had whatever we needed, whether it was being picked up before showings, to taking us to and from the train station, to recommending quality and reliable painters and carpet cleaners, etc. for the move. If we could do it all over again, we would call James in a heartbeat!
Chris Kang and Dr. Sewon Kang, Magnificent Mile
Nykea Pippion-McGriff proved to be quite very knowledgeable and concerned about me as a client. She took very good care of making sure that condo purchase went very smooth and in several instances went over and beyond in working with my lawyer and banker to ensure that my closing went well. I will be referring to my friends to her when they look to purchase a property.
Lanre Kale, Woodlawn
Jim had a way of knowing what type of property was right for me even before I did. He was very easy and fun to work with - I felt like I was condo shopping with a friend. He took the stress out of the buying process and offered great references. I would be happy to work with him again in the future. "
Jennifer Kahn, Wrigleyville
Mitch was great. He was with us every step of the way. He went above and beyond the normal duties of a realtor. Not only did we get the place we wanted, but also a friend in the process.

Marcia did an amazing job assisting my husband and I with both selling and buying a home. With state of the real estate market during our process, there were unforeseen complications but having an advocate like Marcia on our side enabled us to navigate through what would otherwise have been a daunting experience. We purchased a new construction home so there were a lot of extra steps that Marcia helped us with including multiple inspections, contract negotiations, new construction delays, etc. She was a strong and knowledgeable advocate for us throughout the construction process. Marcia clearly explained the real estate processes to us and helped to ease our minds during what could've been a much more stressful process. She even provided a step by step timeline to guide us in our preparation for closing. Marcia provided wonderful references (real estate attorney, inspector etc) which helped our closing process go smoothly. Overall we felt that Marcia did an excellent job. She is dedicated, hard working, knowledgeable, professional, and great to work with. We have already recommended her to our friends and will continue to do so. Thank you Marcia for helping us get the house of our dreams!

We found Mitch on the internet. Mitch was the first to respond to our questions with detail but not force. Although we changed courses midstream, Mitch showed no negativity whatsoever throughout the process. Mitch is very professional and we would recommend him without hesitation. Very ethical, thorough, professional and personal. Good guy. Alison and Jim Jaksa
INCREDIBLE would be the word I would use to describe my experience with Mr. Greg Alley. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and has become my new favorite realtor! I will be using Mr. Alley as my realtor for future real estate transactions.

Inder and family
We love the place. Thanks a lot for your help in finding the right place for us. Your patience was greatly appreciated especially since we did not know much about the neighborhoods in Chicago and you informed us of locations that would be very convenient for our daughters as they find their way to college and work. Since the time we bought the condo my older daughter has gone through rotations for her final year in Pharmacy along with our second daughter. And now our youngest daughter is going to stay with our middle daughter during her internship. We have come up to the City and enjoyed our weekends. Some of our friends from Danville have also spent time at the condo. Our children's cousins have all stayed at the condo after a night out on the town. Needless to say not only are we enjoying the place, all our friends and family are using the place to its full potential. We enjoyed the entire process of hunting for the place and then the closing of the deal. The whole transaction went very smooth. All the other people that you recommended during the deal worked very diligently and everything went like clockwork. Once again thanks a lot for all your help. We look forward to doing more business with you in the future. Inder and family, West Loop
I felt really fortunate to have found Tom as my buyer agent to look for a condo in downtown Chicago. Tom is very familiar with the downtown neighborhoods. He has good instinct about how they match with my preferences. Being from out of state with limited time to visit, Tom was very responsive in arranging units to visit, even with very short notice. Tom provided me with professional counsel on ways to compare the value of one condo versus another. Throughout the entire process, I found Tom to be extremely dependable and helpful.
In the end I found a condo in a vintage building located in a great neighborhood that is convenient to everything essential. In addition, I can also say that I found Tom as my first friend in Chicago.

We were glad to have the sale of our condo finalized. Bonnie and Mark were very professional and cooperative to work with. Bonnie had great ideas on presenting the condo for sale. They took time to rearrange the furniture and make it look appealing. Also we appreciate how they kept in contact with us before and after showings so we would know the progress. We thank you.

Beverly we are so grateful for all your help with our first condo purchase. Your knowledge, experience and other contacts that assisted with our closing were priceless. We love the gift you gave us too! We look forward to doing all our business with you in the Chicago area. We will send you referrals any chance we get.

Marianne, Sara and Jack Herff
Sara, Jack and I want to sincerely thank you for assisting us in finding a Condo for Sara to live in while going to Columbia It is in the perfect location for her and she is busy decorating and getting everything ready before the fall semester begins.
I think I told you after the closing that the best thing I liked about working with you was that you did not bug me. When I initiated a search to see what was available in Chicago for Sara to live downtown, you understood when I told you I was not in any hurry and it would several months before we would really start looking. I really appreciated this and that's why I did not hesitate to contact you after the holidays to start our search.
You were very interested in what we were looking for and supported our decisions completely. Even when we changed our minds about a purchase, or lowered our price range, you focused on our new criteria. You never made us feel that we had wasted your time. I'm sure we took more than the normal time to purchase a condo but you never became impatient with us or tried to pressure us in any way.
Since we had to juggle three people's schedules, you made an extra-ordinary effort to be flexible and get the next step accomplished. You made yourself available at any time and were very responsive to our questions and/or concerns. Your timeliness and thoroughness is commendable!
We also really appreciated the abundance of suggestions and advice. The recommendations of the home inspector, lawyer and mortgage loan officer proved to make the purchase, negotiations and closing a good experience.
They spoke very highly of you and told us how fortunate we were to have you as our realtor. Nykea, you are not only a great realtor, but a wonderful person to know.
We feel very lucky to have met you and worked with you. The gift at the closing was a wonderful surprise and icing on the cake! If the situation ever arises, we will be sure to recommend you and Dream Town to anyone looking for real estate.
Marianne, Sara and Jack Herff, South Loop
We were first time buyers from out of town. Tom helped us identify our goals and find the perfect home. His knowledge of Chicago helped us find an apartment that felt like home in a neighborhood we could afford. He walked us through every step of the process with a lot of patience and understanding. He even recommended a great lawyer, and he was with us at the closing to answer all our questions. I can highly recommend Tom Okon.

As a real estate agent, Amy definitely exceeds our expectations. With her honest approach, we knew she had our best interests at heart as we searched for a home. She was always available when we needed her and managed to schedule all the appointments according to our needs.
Most important, she helped simplify the buying process. We never felt burdened by the paperwork or day to day dealings.
Amy is great! We will definitely recommend her to our friends.

Tammi and the Dream Town team made our cross country move from California seem more like moving down the street. Tammi was always right on top of things, and extremely flexible. We had a very tight schedule, and depended on her to help us fly through the processes as quickly and easily as possible. Tammi helped make it all come together! Thanks so much Tammi!
Zareen, Anne and Behram Hansotia
Just wanted to send you this thank you note. Zareen, Anne and I appreciated your effort and guidance in helping us buy our Chicago condo. Buying a property while living in Michigan is difficult but your diligence in getting back to us promptly and your patience during the negotiating process made the entire experience quite painless. Thank you again. We are sure you will have a wonderful career as word about your excellent service to your clients spreads through the city.
All the best.

From the very first interaction with Kara and Dream Town, the experience was outstanding. She listened and supplied us with leads on properties that fit our taste and budget. Kara's patience and knowledge shined whether it be showing us 16 places in one day or guiding us through the sometimes confusing steps of the closing process. Our new home is amazing! We will be sure to refer our friends and family to Kara and Dream Town.

Sandra and Dave Haffner
Being new to Chicago and not knowing who to trust and who to avoid, we really feel like we found the best person to help us out and get things done. And as first time homebuyers, Misha made the process very smooth and was with us every step along the way. People have always said how stressful it is to buy a house, but honestly, we cannot agree based on our experience with Misha and DreamTown. It was a great experience! The only stress with it all was due to an issue on our part, but even with that, Misha kept rolling and got us right back into things like nothing happened. We felt right at home working with Misha as if she were a long time friend. We trusted her from the start and felt comfortable with her suggestions and expertise. She has a great energy and enthusiasm for what she does, which makes all the difference in her performance. We have already referred another person to her, and will continue to do so every chance we get! Thanks Misha!
Sandra and Dave Haffner, Warrenville
Tom was very patient, and was very good about listening to my needs and desires, he exceeded my expectations.
Mike Hadad, Lincoln Park
George helped me find my new home, and went out of his way many times to do what was needed to make my dream a reality. Moving is a very stressful time. George walked me through the necessary steps, explained everything, and was patient with me no matter how many questions I asked. He went out of his way for me. I trust his opinion and knowledge of the real estate business, and I recommend George Synowiec and Dream Town to anyone thinking about moving. My experience with George Synowiec and Dream Town was wonderful.

Our experience with Mark & Dreamtown was great, right from the beginning. His diligence in showing us properties was incredible and he made sure that the transaction went through smoothly from making the offer through closing. Dreamtown is certainly the most impressive realty company we have worked with and Mark has been nothing but phenomenal. We wish every buyer or seller would end up with a realtor like him.
Thank you Mark!
Puneet and Tanu, Uptown
We enjoyed working with our agent Kora very much. She was very responsive to any questions we asked her, either via phone or email she got back to us right away. All the properties that she showed us were within our price and location range, we didn't waste any time and found our house within a week of looking. We would definitely recommend her.
Heather Groh, Avondale
I met Tammi by chance because my realtor quit before I even met her and Tammi took over. . . this was the best thing that could have happened to me!!! I am from Mexico and it is my first time buying a home. Buying in a foreign country is not an easy task, but Tammi made my experience so easy and enjoyable. She explained everything to me and I knew since the beginning she was on my side at all times. After a lengthy and bumpy process, I finally closed on my condo today. Tammi made the journey so much easier for me. I have no words to thank her! I guess all I can say is: TAMMI, YOU ARE AWESOME!!!

My husband and I are from Scotland and recently we purchased our first home here in the US.
As we started to think about this possibility, we did not have NO IDEA where to start nor had we any idea about the various aspects of the home-buying process.
We accidentally came across your web site and decided to arrange a viewing for a property that was within our price-range. It was during this showing that we met our guardian angel who was to guide us through the coming months. This person was none other than Ms Beverly Bahm.
We immediately felt at ease with Beverly and were very impressed with her extensive knowledge and her confident but yet unassuming demeanour. We knew from the beginning that we could trust Beverly and the honest advice that she would give us within her role as a realtor.
We needed guidance on absolutely everything and were constantly calling with questions & concerns. Beverly always made time for us, no matter what.
Beverly was able to ascertain exactly what kind of property we were looking for and following several showings we were able to find a home, with some of our specific requirements and within our restricted price range.
Throughout the waiting period, Beverly also made herself available to answer questions and deal with last minute issues. We always felt strongly that Beverly had our interests protected at all times especially during some of the unpredictable events that took place.
We feel very grateful towards Beverly for her never-ending patience, unfailing instinct and of course, her excellent skills as a Real Estate Agent.
In conclusion, we highly recommend Ms Beverly Bahm at Dreamtown. com.

I was really impressed with Dave's knowledge and professionalism. From the first place I looked at until closing, he was always working to help me with the purchase of my first home. This was such a big event in my life, and it gave me a lot of comfort to know that Dave not only knew the answers to my questions, he was on my side in the transaction. I would recommend him to anyone. He is someone who really works for his client and he made this whole experience very positive for me. Sincerely, Melissa Gard.
Thanks again for everything, Dave.
